The Kiev Lera Litvinova Gallery hosts a personal exhibition of Yuri Shapoval "ChessNO". The project is a peculiar ironic allusion of reality. The paintings are united by the topic of finding inconsistencies in issues of public, social and not only.
“The works united by this name are a reflection on the theme of our life, in its various manifestations. Indeed, there are a lot of analogies between life and a game of chess: attack, defense, castling, deception, check and checkmate, ”the author says.
Yuri Shapoval was born in 1984 in the Chernihiv region. He did not receive an academic education in the field of fine art; he learns from nature, preferring plein air painting.
